Here’s the lot in the 1100 block of West Cavalcade, a few hundred feet east of the intersection of Main, Studewood, and 20th St. in the Heights, where a new microbrewery calling itself Town in City Brewing Co. (after a previous name, Yard Sale Brewery, got nixed) plans to build a beer campus from kit parts. The kit arrived on a flatbed truck a week or 2 ago: a collection of steel parts from Houston’s Rigid Global Buildings, selected with help from Rigid’s catalog by the Town in City brewers:
Town in City bought the vacant 9,714-sq.-ft. site in August. When it’s complete, it’ll have a 3,200-sq.-ft. brewery, a separate 700-sq.-ft. tap room, and an outdoor “beer garden.” Brewers Justin Engle and Steven Macalello have been telling investors they expect to have the buildings up by the end of the year — and the first brews hopping out of production (in metal kegs) in early 2013.
